SGRE outlines Taiwanese expansion

Siemens Gamesa Renewable Energy (SGRE) plans to expand its nacelle assembly facility in Taichung, Taiwan

SGRE outlined its plans to the facility in Taichung – the company’s nacelle assembly facility outside of Europe – during September 2019, as HLPFI reported here. The turbine manufacturer now plans to develop the plant into a regional industrial hub.

The facility is currently under construction and will start production in 2021 to deliver nacelles to Orsted’s Greater Changhua 1 & 2a offshore wind farm project. Once the nacelle assembly work is completed in 2022, the Taichung factory expansion will start. It will include doubling the plot area to over 60,000 sq m.

The first project to be supported by the broader manufacturing plant is slated to be the 300 MW Hai Long 2 project. The expansion is subject to certain conditions including Hai Long 2’s industrial relevance proposal (IRP) being approved by the Taiwanese authorities, and final investment decision by the project partners.
